This 30’ x 60’ open-air pavilion features an awning on the west side, two enormous concrete silos, and a wooden stage perfect for everything from live performances to wedding vows. The space is lit with six strands of outdoor lights, giving a warm and inviting mood to nighttime gatherings. Also, the minimalist design allows you the flexibility to customize the space to suit your event needs. Chautauqua can accommodate roughly 200 people max, but the space can be divided up and arranged to accommodate a variety of event sizes, as small as 30 people. Chautauqua is available for rent year round, with the option of adding our custom tent to offer protection from the weather and tent walls to provide insulation in the winter.
For all spaces, we typically charge beer upon consumption (by the pint or 7 oz. taster), but can also offer drink tickets or drink packages upon request. You are welcome to have one master tab or individual checks with advanced notice. Our bartenders will pour up to 8 different beers depending on the size of your event from our mobile bar. If you would like to provide wine for your event, our bartenders are able to pour it for a $15 per bottle corkage fee (capped at $350).
You are welcome to bring in home-made items, use your own caterer with advanced approval (and no added fees!), or use a caterer from our extensive list of recommended vendors and food trucks. If you'd prefer to be more hands off, we can also coordinate delicious in-house menus to fit any budget.
We will provide bartenders for your event (number depends on the size of the party and set-up needs). We opt for an hourly Service Fee of $20 per bartender per hour for the length of your event plus a minimum of 1 hour each for set-up and clean-up. We are happy to schedule according to your needs. All event related activities (vendor load-ins, decorating, etc.) must be scheduled in advance with a WISEACRE bartender in attendance at this same Service Fee rate.
We are happy to help coordinate rentals of tables, chairs, linens, and other decor through our preferred vendor, but you are also welcome to bring in your own items or coordinate rentals independently. However you choose to proceed, please note that all outside items must be delivered and picked up the day of the event during pre-scheduled load-in times.
We also have an extensive list of florists, photographers, bands, and more to help you plan every detail of your event.
We can offer tours of our state of the art brewing facility, tastings with our expert staff and fun activities (beer trivia and more!) that can be custom fit for your group. Tours will depend on the brew schedule but are available for an additional cost during most times we are closed to the public. If you want to add a personalized touch to your event, our in-house cicerone (beer sommelier) can also offer pairing suggestion to match your menu. Pricing upon request.
